Previously sources said Prince Harry and Meghan Markles wedding cake was going to be banana flavored but it's all changed!
Pastry chef Claire Ptak, has the honor of creating this royal cake. Ptak was raised in California and now owns London-based bakery Violet Cakes, Kensington Palace explained. Just before that she was a pastry chef at Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley! Cool right?
According to Kensington Palace, the couple asked Ptak to make a "lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring" rather than the more traditional fruitcake. It will also feature buttercream and fresh flowers as decoration. (see tweet below)
Sounds pretty good!
